Mediterranean escapes don’t get much more peaceful or secluded than the dreamy French island of Cavallo. A small dot in the sea tucked between Corsica and Sardinia, it’s private, exclusive and gobsmackingly gorgeous (think gentle, turquoise waters lapping sugary beaches). Flying under the travel radar despite its bucket-list-worthy scenery, this hidden gem promises a luxuriously peaceful getaway.
The four-star Hôtel & Spa des Pêcheurs offers a sumptuous base for your time on the island. With a private beach, a relaxing spa, a picturesque swimming pool and a French-Italian-fusion restaurant, this Small Luxury Hotel of the World makes it quite tempting to stay put. Should you feel like venturing out, though, you have plenty of options. You can embark on a boating or diving excursion, head to a nearby golf course, or rent an electric car and explore this heavenly island.
How to Get There
The island and surroundings are amazing, but I have never had such terrible service. We had various encounters with the staff, most of whom didn’t seem to know what was going on, nor cared much. But my biggest complaint is with the final bill—they never gave us the final itemized bill, claiming the computer system was down. I had to chase them for 2 weeks to get it, only to find there were errors and incorrect extra charges. Now they are not replying to explain/refund these charges. I have emailed over 5 times with zero response. Totally unacceptable from what claims to be a luxury, high end hotel. I will NEVER go back here and would never recommend to anyone based on their total lack of respect and regard for their clients.
Travelled as a couple, stayed a night either side in Bonifacio which was just beautiful. Transfer to island via hotel launch was fun, met by hotel staff at the quayside for the very short buggy ride to the hotel. Absolute tranquility and superbly comfortable room with the widest bed imaginable. Excellent breakfast from plentiful buffet of top quality ingredients. Dining options limited to hotel terrace restaurant or the hotel’s beach bar. Great fish/shellfish selection with some imaginative pasta based dishes simply served with great fresh tomato and seafood. Very good wine list of Corsican, French and Italian wines. Great value by London restaurant comparison.
Buggy hire for a day out picnicking at the peaceful bays around the island is a must. For a great visit La Ferme restaurant, great service and excellent food/cocktails/wine but at eyewatering prices. We decided it was worth it though as a special treat as part of a really enjoyable holiday.
An amazing island no car, a natural paradise, the hotel rooms are large and fully equipped with TV ,aire condition, and a fantastic view on the mediteranee sea.
Excellent restaurant with a nice a la carte menu.
Price are OK considering we have fresh fish
